I am just a poor boyThough my story's seldom toldI have squandered my resistanceFor a pocket full of mumbles, such are promisesAll lies and jestsStill a man hears what he wants to hearAnd disregards the restWhen I left my home and my familyI was no more than a boyIn the company of strangersIn the quiet of the railway stationRunning scared,Laying low, seeking out the poorer quartersWhere the ragged people goLooking for the placesOnly they would knowLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieAsking only workman's wagesI come looking for a jobBut I get no offersJust a come-on from the whoresOn Seventh AvenueI do declareThere were times when I was so lonesomeI took some comfort there, le le le le le le leLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieThen I'm laying out my winter clothesAnd wishing I was goneGoing homeWhere the New York City wintersAren't bleeding meLeading meGoing homeIn the clearing stands a boxerAnd a fighter by his tradeAnd he carries the remindersOf ev'ry glove that laid him downOr cut him till he cried outIn his anger and his shame"I am leaving, I am leaving"But the fighter still remains, mmm mmmLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lieLie la lie, lie la la la lie lieLie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lie
